Eaton high pressure ducting system helps AVIC's new MA700 regional turboprop aircraft improve performance, reduce costs

Power management company Eaton has signed a letter of intent with AVIC Aircraft Company Ltd. Xi'an Branch to supply the High Pressure Ducting System for the MA700 regional turboprop aircraft. In addition to designing and manufacturing customized components, Eaton will provide engineering, development and support certification services for the system.

"Eaton's leadership in conveyance system technologies allowed us to begin making significant contributions in the early stages of AVIC's aircraft development program," said Benjamin Yiu, general manager, Eaton's Aerospace Group, Asia Pacific. "Eaton's ability to integrate customized solutions using proven technology and mature products helps customers improve operational performance while reducing costs."

The newly designed MA700 will feature many of the industry's most advanced technologies and will be the world's first turboprop aircraft to use an advanced fly-by-wire flight control system. It also will help lower operational and maintenance costs and boost eco-friendly performance.

Eaton's metallic ducts are manufactured from three materials - stainless steel, titanium and Inconel - to optimize weight savings while providing the durability required for high-pressure, high-temperature environments.
